Praise for The Three Laws of Performance

"You′d better read this book and fast, because it has the code for the future of your organization.If you can only read one book this year, this is the one."
Dr. Clotaire Rapaille, author of the bestseller The Culture Code

"Cracks the code wide open for breakthrough performance. The recounting of specificsuccesses across diverse businesses makes their claims undeniable. A mustread for next–generation managers and leaders."
Bob Young, former group president, Lockheed Corporation

"This book is a wonderful reminder that things we don′t see determine what we do see, and therefore, what really gets done. The Three Laws of Performance hits the mark in providing both rich food for thought and techniques that can create profound results."
David Allen, author, Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress–Free Productivity and Making It All Work: Winning at the Game of Work and the Business of Life

"Implementing their three ′invariable laws′ will help you and others perform beyond your limits, andwith integrity. The reasoning is sound, the language is clear, the illustrations are compelling. A delightful, informative read."
Chris Argyris, James Bryant Conant Professor (Emeritus), Graduate Schools of Business Administration and of Education, Harvard University

"The Three Laws of Performance is mustreading for leaders who want to make a positive difference. Change doesn′t happen in a vacuum; it happens when people see and hear a future they can get excited about. Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan show how true leaders sidestep negative stumbling blocks to articulate visions that heal and inspire."
Ken Blanchard, coauthor, The One Minute Manager and Leading at a Higher Level

The Three Laws of Performance provides a list of rules (and stories explaining how they work in practice) that promise to help individuals in leadership roles facilitate the group coherence and cohesion that are necessary to bring about transcendent performance. The book is based on a wealth of experience from decades of applying the ideas it explains. If you′re interested in this kind of theory, the book is worth a read. (

I received an email a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in reviewing the new book from Steve Zaffron and Dave Logan titled the three laws of performance . I jumped at the opportunity .free book right?

Well I d happily pay twice the list price for this book and so should you .
The full title of the book is The Three Laws of Performance: Rewriting the Future of Your Organization and Your Life and it is called a Warren Bennis book if you like Bennis, you ll like this book too.

The premise of the book is that there are three laws that will always affect performance just like the law of gravity will always have an effect on you.
The three laws are:

How people perform correlates to how situations occur to them
How a situation occurs arises in languages
Future based language transforms how situations occur to people

This is a great book I think it is one of the best books I ve read in the last few years. Grab this book soon as you can and enjoy! (

Three Laws is about impossible transformations and how systemic change can remake your life or your organization. (Life Insurance Selling)
